My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

Sunday, October 18, 2009
Right now the is a bill floating aroung the House and Senate that could beneficial for us Crohnies. H.R. 2275 or S.981 would let Congress know that the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease at should expand research on IBD. Also, the bill would authorize for five years an IBD Epidemiology Program at CDC, and create an awareness program at the agency.

Please contact your legislator and urge them to co-sponsor the IBD Research and Awareness Act.
